Additional text

In December 2016, the Cabinet Office launched its minimum standards for government grants: These include the requirement that competition should be the default option when considering award of grant funding.
To comply, the Home Office has decided to manage its competitions using their Jaggaer eSourcing portal. The event will be run on the Home Office (HO) Jaggaer eSourcing portal.

How to register
In order to bid for funding, bidders will first need to register on the portal via the following link:
Bidders should be approved for usage within 24 hours of registering on the system.
After clicking on the eSourcing portal link, it should take you to the home page. On the left-hand side of this page, just below the login boxes, there is an option to register.
To register as a supplier you will need to provide information which will include:
• the full legal name of your organisation
• your DUNS number - a unique nine-digit number provided to organisations free of charge by Dun & Bradstreet
• profile information describing your organisation and the size of your business

Once registered as a supplier on the portal please send a notification e-mail to to request access to the associated documents for the Perpetrator Programme Fund.

If you have any difficulties registering on the system then you should contact the Supplier eSourcing Helpdesk:

The HO Jaggaer eSourcing portal is independent of other eSourcing portals. Therefore if you have registered on the Crown Commercial Service Jaggaer eSourcing portal, you will also need to register on the HO Jaggaer eSourcing portal.

Please note that bids will only be accepted via the HO eSourcing portal. Any bids received outside of this system will not be considered by the Authority.
Registering for access to the eSourcing tool will not make you a Home Office supplier. To be considered for award of funding you must first respond to an opportunity.
Further information about procurement at the Home Office can be found on the website.

How to apply
Once successfully registered on the system you should email . You will then be given access to the event on the eSourcing portal, where you will find all the documentation needed. Applications for the fund will be submitted via the eSourcing portal.
